Notes

Recognition of Khiondhecwi and Ondinoc led to " health and well-being but the inhibition of that need could lead to illness and possibly death." [2]

Note, the community got together to help satisfy the individuals needs and desires. "In the broader context, the ondinoc of the individual would be announced to the entire village by a chief and all of its members would attempt, as soon as possible, to provide the necessary goods and actions that would lead to the dreamers satisfaction (JR 17:155; Sagard 1939:118). In this way, dreaming functioned dynamically as a religiously motivated basis for processes of social integration and interaction."[3]
